Between the two grants, we are anticipating that a total of 2,500 individuals will be screened over the grant period with 1,089 receiving permanent housing and connected to behavioral health, physical health services and benefits. Supportive employment specialists will competitively employ 125 persons. Local and state staff will be trained in EBPs and disseminate them statewide. An expanded statewide infrastructure will endorse adoption of these EBPs throughout Ohio, and adopt policies and strategies to sustain them over several years. For this grant, OhioMHAS was awarded funding for three years, through Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) September 2017).
